Brief update guys!

It's been asked a couple of times so I wanted to let those of you with automatic RX-8's know that this fan and shroud assembly is compatible with your vehicle as well! They have been customer installed and the built in transmission cooler lines of the OE radiator will clear the shroud!

These are in stock and ready to ship!

Thanks guys, we appreciate your business, Scott

Any photos on the fitting? I am struggling with the bottom post alignment. The top fits well.

Skc, wanted to answer your question. Keep in mind I did it with no engine in the car so results may vary.

On my radiator the bottom posts lined up okay with the fan shroud, but only one top post worked. It's less than perfect but should hold up.

I can try and get pictures if you would like.

If combined with the rx8performance radiator, will modification still be needed to the factory airbox tray and battery tray, or does this fan leave enough clearance without any modification?

Yes it can be used with our dual pass radiator without modifying the battery tray, we have a additional hardware kit that will increase the clearance slightly. What battery are you using currently?

Thanks for the reply. I'm going to take another look at it this weekend and decide what direction to go...

Battery is smaller than stock, so I have room to modify the tray if needed. I'm a bit more concerned about modifying the stock fans and the interference with the air intake.
I don't have an AC condenser, so it should be possible for me to space the radiator down a little bit to make more room...

I'm not sure which intake your running but if you don't have an a/c condenser to contend with your absolutely correct that you can lower the top mounting brackets and add additional spacing if you like.

Either way I don't believe it would be an issue as we haven't seen it as one here at our facility with any intakes whether F/I or N/A applications.
